EMPLOYMENT

Teachers Are the Heart of Our School!

We are participating in the Early Achievers Program and teachers can apply for scholarships in ECE.

We have a dedicated group of professional teachers that share a common goal of offering programs that meet children and families needs. Each program focuses on a different age group and offers opportunities to learn new skills and explore different topics of study.

We are always on the look out for teachers, on call for substitutes, and temps. If you are interested please contact Katrina Brooke, the Director at (425) 882-1981. You would work for teachers when they are gone for training or out sick.  If a substitute or temp is working in the classrooms and is a good fit we often offer them the next permanent teaching spot.
